Teams phone allows users to seamlessly enable calls from one Teams app to another. A productivity booster in any organization, we’ll get down to the details about Teams Phones here.

How much does Microsoft Teams Phone cost?

Depending upon the Microsoft 365 plan that you have, you will either need to add the phone system and a calling plan. If your Microsoft 365 plan already includes the phone system, you can call other Teams users over the internet. If you would like a phone number and the ability to call cell phones and landlines you will need to add a calling plan. The phone system add on starts at $8 per user per month. The phone system + calling plan starts at $15.00 per user per month for domestic dialing. It is possible to utilize your existing calling plan from another provider as well. Calling plans are available to your businesses needs and include options for:

  • Domestic calling plan
